"Merriam-Webster says of 'faith': "allegiance to duty or a person; something that is believed especially with strong conviction". This is a fair definition that allows not to have to wrestle with the metaphysical implications of…"

"I have no faith either, especially if it means complete trust or confidence in someone or something.  Not even myself."

"I'm sorry, Jonathan. I have no "faith." None whatsoever. I'm not sure why you are thinking god might come down and strike someone with a lightning bolt? I do not believe in god. I also have no "faith" that I'm…"

"Long ago, when I was trying to figure out how I got caught in an abusive marriage and why was it impossible for my mother, both grandmothers and very many women in my family to escape? Of 27 women I could identify who were alive and I knew…"

"Science is not a demonstrable fact. Science is a system of facts. If the only way one can reject the compatibility of science and religion is denial and hysterics, then I should find no reason to reject compatibility at all. There is no difference…"

"Michael, why did you delete your definition of faith? It is a good one. I don't know the source, but it certainly fits what I perceive to be true. Of course, I could be wrong. I have been known to be so. "

"A satirical atheist website. Do they exist for comedic reasons? What is the purpose of any atheist website? What is the alternative and do any of us really care except for their magic claims of belief? Atheism says there is no evidence of god. …"

"Congratulations. You used a "definition" from a satirical atheist website and passed it off as the dictionary. Rhetoric might feel satisfying, but it is an empty victory."

"Not quite, Michael, though you have persuaded me that faith of the religious kind did you some harm, as it did me. My New Oxford American Dictionary defines faith in two ways. 1. complete trust or confidence in someone or something. 2. (this one is…"

"There certainly is a lot of willful ignorance in religion and when the willfully ignorant take part in political life it's not easy to deal with. We have to outnumber them, or their ignorance will become public policy. Inexcusable? Only if the…"

"Spud, this is much like the Catholicism I heard of decades ago when I was in Catholic schools. I often heard "Error has no rights" and of course Catholicism taught that all other religions were error. "
